WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 07: U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) speaks to members of the media as he arrives at the Rayburn House Office Building where former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey testifies to the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees on Capitol Hill December 07, 2018 in Washington, DC. With less than a month of control of the committees, House Republicans subpoenaed Comey to testify behind closed doors about investigations into Hillary Clinton’s email server and whether President Trump’s campaign advisers colluded with the Russian government to steer the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), leader of the House Freedom Caucus who has President Trump’s ear, was less than thrilled about the compromise funding deal that lawmakers tentatively reached on Monday evening, and suggested that Trump’s will likely have the same reaction.

“This does not represent a fraction of what the president has promised the American people,” Meadows told the Washington Post Monday evening. “I don’t speak for the President but I can’t imagine he will be applauding something so lacking.”
